Cadets Down Buckeyes; Meet Utah Today
Battalion Sports Staff
A 370-foot home run by Yale Lary in the eighth inning
gave the Aggies a 3-2 victory over Ohio State yesterday in
the second round of the NCAA playoffs at Omaha.
Bob Tankersley went all the way, giving up six hits.
He walked and struck out three and hit one batsmen in the
game that eliminated the Buckeyes from the tournament.
The Cadets meet the University of Utah in the third
round this evening at 6 as part of a twi-night double header.
It will probably be Pat Hubert back on the mound after only
one days rest to try and put the Farmers in the quarter or
semi-finals, as the case may be.
The Aggies drew first blood in the initial inning when
they put together three walks and two fielder’s choices for
a single run scored by Second Baseman Joe Ecrette. Bill Mc
Pherson got credit for the RBI.
Ohio State came back in the second to tie it up on Dave
Parill’s single and his steal of second. Jack Gannon’s single
advanced him to third and he scored when Bill Kraker, Buck
eye left fielder, singled through second into center field.
The game remained deadlocked until the sixth inning
when Lary, leading hitter for the Aggies after two days of
play, singled, moved to second on McPherson’s single and
came home on a third single by Hollis Baker, moved to center
field for yesterday’s game.
Lary’s four-master in the eighth ran the score to 3-1 but
the forces of Marty Karow, Aggie baseball mentor for four
years, came back in the bottom of the eighth to score their
second and final run on a walk, single, sacrifice and another
single by Parill, Buckeye firsft baseman who was OS’s leading
hitter with two for four.
By beating Ohio State, A&M kept alive the dugout
jinx which existed through the first six games. The team in
the visiting Ohama dugout lost every game.
In other results at the “Rose Bowl of College Baseball,”
Tennessee’s Volunteers eliminated Princeton from the cham-'
pionships with a 3-2 victory, Southern California tripped
Utah 8-2 and Oklahoma beat Springfield 7-1.
A&M had men on base in every inning but the fifth and
seventh. Baker walked to start the second inning but was
erased from the sacks as, after Bill Munnerlyn flied out,
Tankersley hit into a double play.
In the third inning, Ohio State cut down Ecrette, who
had singled, with a double play as Lary bounced into the
4-6-3 twin-killing.
The Aggies blew another chance in the fourth when Can-
delari singled and was caught stealing. McPherson walked,
A1 Ogletree got on base via an error but Baker and Munner
lyn failed to produce as they both hit into fielder’s choices.
It was three up and three down for the Farmers in the
seventh. After Lary had hit his home run, the second one to
be hit at the tournament through the Aggie game yesterday,
Ogletree singled but was left stranded.
Tankersley got the eighth hit of the game for the Aggies

Stiff Resistance
Tokyo, June 15—(A 5 )—Communist
troops in the scrubby hills near
Kumhwa and Hanggye fought
fiercely today against advancing
allied infantrymen on the eastern
Korean front.
To the west, United Nations pa
trols reached out three to six miles
without finding Reds, after nulli
fying the Chinese buildup areas
around gutted Chonvon, Kumhwa
and Pyonggang.

Starts Monday
The Sixth Annual Rural
Church Conference will be
gin Monday with top ranking
specialists from over the na

to put on the program.
Approximately 130 7ural laymen
and ministers are expected to at
tend the conference scheduled to
last until 1 p. m. Wednesday.
Sponsored by the Rural Socio
logy Department, conference meet
ings will be held in the MSC. Reg
istration for the visitors will be
held from 8 a. m. to 10 p. m. in
the lobby of the MSC.
The specialists include Dr. Ar

ed signs of life. Two planes struck
far behind U. N. lines in their
deepest penetration in months.
“Could Take Red AF”
The United Nations “could take
care of the Chinese air force” with
combat planes already in Japan
and Korea, U. S. Air Secretary
Thomas J. Finletter commented in
Tokyo. U. S. army officers have
estimated the Reds have 3,000
planes in Manchuria.
It might be a different story
if the Russians entered the war
with their “very powerful” air
force, Finletter said. That would
create “a very serious situation.”
However, he said, he had no in
formation that Russians have been
flying the Soviet type jets that
have tangled with American planes
over northwestern Korea.
Propeller Type Craft
The two Red air strikes Thurs
day morning were by propeller
type craft. One plane bombed and
strafed an allied air field at Su
won, 25 miles south of Seoul. An
other raided Yongdongpo, a sub
urb of the old South Korean capi
U. N. air forces struck back
promptly. They hit three Red air
fields in western Korea. Far East
Air Forces reported runways at
Sunan and Sunchon were “post-
holed by bombs.” Sariwon was
bombed at night.
Rain clouds restricted air ac
tivity over Korea Friday.
Just how far allied commanders
intend to send their ground troops
inside North Korea in their present
drive was puzzling. Both the U. S.
8th Army and general headquart
ers communiques Friday morning
mentioned only patrols going be
yond present lines.
Two Spearheads
They have pushed two spearheads
roughly 30 miles north of the 38th
parallel—through the steep hills
of the east coast beyond Kansong,
and up a fertile western valley
through Pyonggang.
If the supreme allied command
er, Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, de
cides to send strong forces up the
Pyonggang Valley to Wonsan on
the east coast, he may clamp size
able Red forces in a vise.
All of Thursday’s ground fight
ing was in this eastern area be
tween these two forces.

San Antonio, June 15—(IP)—MacArthur
the soldier comes to a soldier’s town today
and to the post where he lived as a lad.
At Fort Sam Houston — with its vast
Arthur MacArthur parade ground, named
for his father—He’ll take the tribute of his
way of life for half a century.
It is but a brief visit: to receive a 17-gun
salute and to review the color guard.
But it will be a military setting and it
will be his first trip back to the soldier’s life
since he returned from Japan, stripped of
his multiple titles of command.

Summer Housing

First Term Ratio of 20-1
Battalion News Staff
With a possible one or two un-
accountables still hiding out, the
Registrar’s Office yesterday placed
enrollment for the first summer
session at 2,524.
The figure represents a slight in
crease over the enrollment for
this period last year.
And, true to previous rumors,
the official tally shows female
enrollment, too, increased over
that of last year. Lest you be
misled, though, the total co-ed
enrollment is 127, putting them
at about a 20 to one ratio with
male students.
Other break-downs on the regis
tration shows a total of 399 grad
uate students and 1998 undergrad
uates attending summer classes.
Veteran’s Advisor Taylor Wilkins
estimates that 662 of that number
are veterans enrolled under the
GI Bill of Rights.
From a housing stand-point,
Walton Hall is the sole co-ed bas
tion on the campus. Fourteen fe
males live in one ramp of that
dorm. All other summer co-eds are

July 25, 1951, was released by the
Veteran’s Administration Center
this morning.
The regulation said that a school
teacher who has timely initiated
his course of training may attend
either summer session where the
school has more than one session
and meet the requirements to re

Continuous Training
The veteran’s training must be
continuous after the above men

(in most cases) must be submitted
by the veteran to the Veteran’s
Administration Office at Waco
prior to completion of the course
in which he is currently enrolled,
if he desires to pursue an additional
course of training later.

255. All cadets are housed in
floors one through three of
Dorms 14 and. 17.
Other campus dormitories house
1,020 civilian male students includ
ing undergraduates, graduates,
short-term students and special
course students.
Not included in this figure are
44 geology students from the Uni
versity of Texas taking a special
course and living on the campus.
College-owned apartments are
home to 469 families. That many
married students with families are
enrolled. Other apartments are be
ing occupied by families of students
away at ROTC camp or otherwise
not enrolled for the present semes
ter here.
Though no official estimates
are available, it is probable that
a large number of the female
students and graduate students
fall in the married category.
Most married undergraduates are
living with their families in col
lege apartments.
As for the feminine curricula, in
dications are that most of the ladies
are taking Liberal Arts courses.
A few are registered in technical
and special courses. And some, of
course, are graduate students.
As for that 20-1 ratio—such min
or adjustments as the number of
married girls and other factors
widen the gap even more. It’s
still A&M, me lads, even in the
good old summertime.
Housing accomodations at A&M
for the first summer term are
quite adequate, according to Harry
Boyer, Chief of Housing.
Dormitories in use for the sum
mer semesters include Bizzell Hall,
Milner Hall, and Walton Hall as
well as Dormitories 14, 15, 16, 17.
Occupying A ramp of Walton
Hall are 14 women, most of them
are taking courses in elementary
school teaching methods. B ramp
of Walton is reserved for visitors
who will be enrolled in the various
short courses offered throughout
the summer.

First Baptist Post
The Rev. O. Byron Richardson,
pastor of the First Baptist Church,
has resigned to accept pastorate
in Park Height Baptist Church at
San Angelo.
Reverend Richardson has been
with the First Baptist Church since
last September. His resignation will
become effective today. The Church
has had over 300 additional mem
bers during his stay here.
Tuesday afternoon he left for
the Southern Baptist Convention
in San Francisco, Calif.
He will return July 8 for an of
ficial farewell by all members of
his pastorate.
F ramps are for students enrolled
in cotton short courses.
The rest of Walton is being oc
cupied by civilian students enrolled
for the summer term.
Graduate students make up most
of the residents of Bizzell Hall, al
though some undergraduate civil
ian students have residence there.
At present Milner Hall has as its
occupants civilian students.

Twenty to 30 apartments in Col

vacant now and are available to
married students, although vete
rans will be given first preference,
Boyer said.
Although no apartment short
ages exists now, it is expected that
with the beginning of the 1951
Fall semester in September, apart
ments will probably become scarce,
the housing chief said.
A major speech downtown will end the
whirlwind visit. Then it is on to Dallas, for
another speech—expected to be in a general
pattern of seeking “grass roots” support for
his Korean war policies.
San Antonio is home of the Fourth Army
and countless other Army and Air Force in
stallations. It is a haven for retired soldiers,
and many of these—from four star generals
like “Skinny” Wainwright and Walter Krue
ger—are old friends of the General.

Grover Willis, who lost both legs
after making the Bataan death
The two talked together in low
tones, MacArthur bending down to

Another was Lt. W. W. Hardin,

Arthur ashore at Leyte, when the
Allies went back to the Philippines.
He was a patient, too.
There /might have been more,
but MacArthur didn’t see them.
His split second time table called
for double time all day.
This minute timing for a time
caused a rumpus between the
Daughters of the Republic of Tex
as and Maj. Gen. Innis P. Swift
(Ret), in charge of arrangements
for the visit here.
Swift, who took the First Caval
ry into Pacific battle in World
War II, retreated and the ladies
got their way: ten minutes of Mac-
Arthur’s time, to have him sign
the guest book inside the Alamo—
and to present a silver spoon with
a likeness of Texas’ shrine of free
dom engraved upon it.
